Both immigration and retirement entail loss and require re-definition of identity. Retirement poses major challenges for anyone. For an immigrant, retirement has an additional aspect of reactivating the trauma of immigration with its losses and the necessity to develop a new cultural identity. Within the context of an immigrant analyst’s personal story, Dr. Cömert will describe how an immigrant may negotiate the formation of separate cultural identities and how retirement may disrupt as well as reshape this identity structure.
